On the ship--Happy HNT

I drove with one of the crew to Savannah to get on the ship, thinking that we would be leaving tomorrow. Because one of the engineers got off the ship in Miami, we have to wait for another one to come onboard. So, we won't get underway until Saturday.

Savannah is an interesting town. I walked around and heard a couple of neat street musicians. These are old guys who sing off key, with one playing a guitar and the other doing the soft shoe. Really neat stuff.

Savannah is an open container town, or at least that's the way it is on River Street. Lots of people who belong in the rooms walking around. I'll be glad to get out of here and get to work.

The next group of scientists coming on board are mostly technical folks who are working with an autonomous vehicle that will swin along a programmed track and take footage of the bottom habitats. The amount of computers and control panels on board has tripled. It's like a NASA type operation.

I'm feeling peaceful and accepting, yet I also miss home. It will take a few days to make the transition to shipboard life again.

By the way, hAApy hAAlf nAAked Thursday!

  1. I have always wanted to go to Savannah. I must have heard it's a good party town or something. Maybe it's not so great when you're clean???
    It's nice to catch up with you, Syd. I was wondering where all your posts were. I was confused --;-) -- so what else is new?
    Love to you,


Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
